These screenings are one of three ways to get your biometric information, with the other two choices: a well checkup with your physician, or an at-home test, each worth five credits. Completion of the online Health Assessment Questionnaire also is required to receive the 2017 discount and is worth five credits. A total of 30 credits is needed by Nov. 15 to receive the discounted premium for plan year 2017. Biometric screening results, the online Health Assessment Questionnaire and any additional credits you earn throughout this period must be manually entered into the portal at KansasHealthQuest.com.
